    The course was simple to follow. Many of the tutorials were just recycled youtube videos from other schools/teachers, instead of being original content. This seems pretty cheap and sometimes confused things. Also some of the assessments questions were poorly written

    I’m finding my course is great, there is so much i never knew about myself and other people, on our behaviour, why we can think, act. feel towards various issues, in our lives, etc. there is so much in the course of continued interest as i work through it all. The tutors have been wonderful, in responding quick and with relevant feedback on my work.

    The course content was okay, but unfortunately I could have corrected my own work better than one of the tutors. I was helped to finish my course though by someone who understood my circumstances

    I have previuosly done the GST course with The Career Academy and this was very helpful. I think we could have more Financial Papers to practice and get a feel for the process and practicing. But overall very instructional.

    I loved the course, it was really helpful in gaining the knowledge to apply to future employment. the only thing I have would be that when you had a resubmit that the tutors explained things a bit better. I chose the career academy as they had very good courses to be able to upskill and gain what relevant stuff I needed to be able to use it in my business

    I chose this course because it seemed to have the best reputation. Some questions on the assessments seem ambiguous and so require the student to guess at the meaning behind the question.

    Downloading and uploading can be a bit of a challenge to us non techno people, but once I got familiar with that process it became enjoyable to complete each assignment. Fortunately for me I only had to re-submit once and that really was a challenge to follow those instructions. Thank you for your quick responses with every correspondence I had with you all. I chose to study with Career Academy as other courses didn’t come in at the level I needed to start with. I needed to build up my confidence first, before committing both financially and mentally to a certificate or diploma level. Thank you again. It has been very beneficial.

    Had looked around at a few other options but I liked the professionalism of career academy. Also was impressed with the contact provided by Demelza to check the course was the right one for me. Found her very helpful and replied promptly to me queries

    I liked the fact that I had a text book as reading online can be more difficult. I was talking to my accountant who had done the book keeping course and it suited what I wanted to learn.
